the government. he's making the plea on behalf of his home state of new jersey, as well as for new york and connecticut. christie met with president obama at the white house first, then with house speaker john boehner at the capital. at a senate hearing thursday, senator charles schumer of new york presented his case for rebuilding the storm zone. "new york has no choice, we have to adapt. new york and new jersey are a waterfront region in the path of violent new weather realities." president obama meanwhile is seeking $50 billion from congress for emergency aid for 11 states with storm damage. the improving housing market is turning into a wealth builder for americans. according to the federal reserve, financial wealth in american households grew to $64 trillion, up $1.7 trillion during the 3rd quarter. here's how that happened: the value of real estate rose $300 billion, while stocks climbed $520 billion. economists have said an increase in wealth translates into consumer spending. the report from the fed also shows americans cut debt by 2% last quarter. space exploration technologies
, they control the house, senate, and the governorship, even though it's a state that barack obama carried. they got this through in the house and senate, it's a big deal, a poiseen pill for the unions, they hate right to work. i think it's a smart move economically, a lot of new businesses, when looking at building new factories or plans, they will not even consider states that are right to work. so much of the growth in this country is in the right to work states. i think if it passes, and it will probably be tuesday or wednesday when we get a final vote on this, i think it puts michigan with a 10% or 11% unemployment rate, back on the map. >> and one of the highest union states in the country, did a lot to help reelect president obama, is steven correct that this actually, economically, makes sense, even if politically it seems kind of out of step? >> i go back and forth on this one. on the downside, it means slower wage growth than would have been the case. that's why businesses want this. i think steven is right. it will lead to more jobs. michigan is at a disadvantage against some of
retaliatory action from the united states. monday, president obama warned the syrian regime. >> i want to make it clear to assad and those under his command, the world is watching. the use of chemical weapons is and would be totally unacceptable. >> reporter: obama administration and military officials say they believe president assad has gotten the message. >> we have sent an unmistakable message that this would cross a red line. and those responsible would be held to account. >> reporter: the syrian regime, which has been massacring citizens for nearly two-straight years, has been careful not to confirm it has the weapons. >> even if we have them, we shall not use them against our people. >> reporter: but president assad's father used chemical weapons. and officials believe pressure on the current government is mounting. opposition is making tactical gains that could trigger a shift in the conflict. the state department believes the conflict is growing closer to assad and is looking into reports that assad's men are looking for a place to go into exile. >> tahman bradley, live in washington.
secretary of state for obama, which surprised lots of people, her advisers said, look, this is the perfect resume building action. and number two, if you run in 2016, you will be younger than ronald reagan was when he was inaugurated, and as we know, women are so much healthier than men, particularly at that age. >> helene, i talked to a democratic senator this week who said, she's absolutely running. given everything that she's doing, how she's reaching out to supporters and positioning herself, it will put a lot of pressure on other democrats as to whether they want to try to stand in the way. >> i think it is. what i think is so interesting is just how skillfully she has navigated all of the foreign policy crises of the last four years, and managed to come out of the last four years relatively unscathed. she's stayed away from the israel-mideast, the most contentious domestically and politically national security issue. which is the palestinians and israel. she stayed away from that. she hasn't been dragged into any of that. she somehow has managed to come out of the benghazi thing unsc
obama signed a new stark treatment. an agreement between united states and russia to reduce the number of nuclear weapons in each country's arsenal. he called that his top national security priority and he got the senate to ratify it. it's hard to put a bigger exclamation point on a policy than the way he's talked about nuclear disarmament. and counterproliferation. keeping the world safe not just from nuclear weapons, but nuclear material falling into the wrong hands. it's still this underappreciate ed it thing about what is important to him. and also how long it's been important to him. today president obama underscored how seriously he's taken this issue from the beginning of his career in a speech praising in part republican richard lugar's work on nuclear weapons and nuclear material as senator lugar prepares to leave washington after decades. >> it was dick who took me on my first foreign trip as a senator to russia and ukraine. i remember walking through one facility. i started leaning in for a closer look and one of the workers said don't touch that orange stuff. it it turned o
four years the president of the united states, barack obama has borrowed more money than every other president until the first five months of president combined. they think it's some kind of monday nopefully game. what is the president and congress spending the money on take an example the stimulus almost a trillion dollars. that's one huge amount spent within a couple of years. it left not a trace? is money that went to entitlements and food disamps. extreme and trivial went to giving sandra fluke free contraceptives that she can't afford at $165,000 a year. she can't shell out $15 a month. that's at the ridiculous extreme. at the other extreme is what you have talked about the huge increase in people on food stamps. the fact that obama's own hhs is trying to loosen the rules, the work rules for welfare so we go back to the old system of people living forever on the doll. that's where they want to spend the money and they have to borrow it because we don't have it. borrowing money what they call unsustainable. what that means is if we continue to do this and there is no -- it doesn'
was in awe, you know. >> another product of a single parent home, you met the president of the united states, president obama. tell us about how you felt on that occasion. >> oh, he is a very nice man and he's just so down to earth. i remember we all walked into the oval office and we were just like standing like this and he was like, no, just stand -- you don't have to stand like that. we were like, okay, and we just started talking to him. he gave us presidential m and ms and it was fun. we got to visit the bakery shop and flower shop. it's such a fun experience. >> now, i understand you like reading, you like studying. what do you do other than gymnastics? what are your interests? >> just relaxing and chilling out because i'm in the gym 24/7 and when i'm in the gym it's like really high intensity workout so when i come home i just want to relax and chill out. >> really? >> yeah. >> so is she obsessed with the gym? is she a normal child outside of the gym? >> she's a normal child but she still does gymnastics. she's always trying to do a cartwheel or jump on something. i don't think that w
for from president obama and the united states in terms of the posture they take and the amount of pressure on iran, and how much of a difference it would make? purely on human rights as opposed to economic issues. >> well, i don't think that any western country can change the behavior of the iranian regime when it comes to the way it treats political prisoners and dissidents. i think that is the realistic view. but what happened -- when i was in prison the war was absolutely silent about the fact that there were about -- i don't know -- 40 down political prisoners in prisons, 90% under the age of 20. but what the silence of the world -- on ground zero for us, did for us, who were imprisoned in iran at the time, it robbed us from hope. yes. you cannot change the behavior of the iranian regime but what you can do is to give the likes -- 7,000 political prisoners who are right now in prison, you can give them hope, because the news does get into the prison, and if they actually hear that you in the united states of america -- and i promise you they will hear this -- you're standing up for the

liberal with the re-election of president obama, politics at the state level is more conservative than ever. now michigan, the home and birthplace of the united auto workers, is about to become the 24th state to pass right to work laws for private and public workers unions bitterly oppose. michigan governor rick snyder is expected to sign the bills on tuesday. >> i view this as solving an issue for michigan workers. we have hard-working people in michigan. this is about giving workers choice. david: what does all this mean for the workers, for businesses and for the unions? joining us is michigan state senator patrick kulbec. thanks for coming in. i appreciate it. let's say what right to work laws are not. they not about outlawing unions. a lot of union workers have said, these right to work laws would outlaw, they're only about not forcing people to pay the unions if people don't want to, right? >> that's exactly it. collect tiff bargaining still stays in place. all we're talking about is giving workers a choice whether or not they want to financially compensate a union via union deal
people lose. i have seen an attribute in president obama when i served with him in the state senate where he was able to rise above and transform some very controversial issues in a way that was powerful. and it's my hope that president obama rises to this opportunity, avoids this zero- sum-game splash and instead leads the nation in ways that only one person can do, that is the president of the united states. to get to yes. house republicans are not prepared to get to foolish. and it is foolish to reject president obama's own self- described architecture of $3 in spending cuts for every dollar in new revenue. we are prepared to work and call on the white house to do the same thing. >> speaker boehner, president obama, the white house projection last offer -- \[inaudible] 53% of americans will blame republicans in congress if you go over the fiscal cliff. how long can you have that hard above. -- how long can you afford politically to have those tax cuts? >> america faces a very serious problem and our goal is to make sure it gets solved. we have a debt problem that is out of control. we
that there neighborhoods in the united states where president obama got 97 to 97 a% of the vote. the turnout level strikes me as possibly suspicious. philadelphia has been a place that's had some pretty irregular election procedures in the past. >> we had a lot of people come out on election day, so that's great. what i want to do now is sit down with the secretary of state and say how can we improve this. >> with sometimes scary sometimes shaky claim of voter fraud and lawsuits of voter i.d. six and seven 8 hour waiting lines this was ugly contentious election. one of the rising stars of the republic party pushed through a tough photo i.d. requirement in his state. we will talk to chris about it. niger the racial quality believes that efforts to crackdown on voter fraud are actually aimed at cutting down votes. so niger, welcome to you, secretary kobach welcome to you. secretary to you first, is this one of a certain magnitude or really is a solution chasing a problem? >> well, there is no question we have voter fraud pockets of it all over the countrifully kansas, even where you know, you wouldn't knows

there since i was 16. i am asking the sheriff's offices or the state office or my third cousin barack obama to look it up. so that needs to be shutdown real soon. they run all kinds of drugs out of there. the chief of police backed by asian mafia, ed lee they don't mind at all. [speaker not understood] i hear that the sheriff is going to do something about it and jerry brown has our back and so did obama. so the whole office should be further investigated and we want to support our local businesses. i would suggest that anyone who loves local businesses -- i hear on good authority there will be six new supreme court justices because they are just not doing their job. thank you. >> any other public comment that is not on today's agenda? seeing none, public comment is closed. next item. >> commissioners, you are now on item 5, discussion and briefing -- mr. president, would you like to take items 5 and 6 together? >> sure. >> item 5 discussion and briefing on supervisors file no. 12096 3 business and tax regulations code improvement districts longer term when assessment pledged to b
slow release. >>> one of the big decisions president obama must make is who will replace secretary of state hillary clinton. john kerry's name is floating around. there's talk of michael bloomberg or bill clinton. dana millbank is a "washington post" columnist. the president is standing firm by rice. we remember the stern words he gave against the senators who were targeting her. take a listen. >> for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence she had received and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> since then a couple of other senators besides mccain and graham have spoken out saying rice misled the public. when the american ambassador and three others were killed in the attack in september. the real question here is can she be confirmed? not just because of benghazi but because of her whole body of work as the united nations ambassador? >> well, she does have an unusually large number of enemies on capitol hill because of things that have happened in the past, certainly john mccain b
-american president of the united states. what a wonderful location, that is something to celebrate. he has been here many times, president obama. the very surprised we had of being able to celebrate the first asian mayor of san francisco. it was not my doing, it was all of the people of san francisco saying it is about time we celebrate. thank you to the people of san [applause] i have a very short message. what did i have felt very strongly in my first elected year, but also during my tenure as interim mayor. we have a great deal of celebrate. we also have a great challenge in front of us. there are so many of our asian american friends, iranian friends, friends from the philippines, friends from our japanese-american community, are chinese-american community, waiting for the opportunity to come together to celebrate our diversity, but also to signal to our european friends, our latino france, we are ready to help lead this state. and helped change the conversation and not only celebrate diversity, but use diversity for our strength. that is our strength. i want to signal to you, let's come togethe
of the united states against barack obama and if he did so, roger ails said he would quit fox news and run his campaign. how about it. don't tell me fox news is not the broadcast arm of the republican party. that proves it! all right. we'll get into that and a whole lot more here. first we get the latest current news update from lisa ferguson out in los angeles. hi lisa. good morning. >> hey bill. good morning everyone. so far the president seems to be staying strong when it comes to taxes. as you all know by now house republicans sent in a fiscal cliff counter offer yesterday but the white house is calling it no good. i want to give you an idea of where the two sides stand right now. boehner's new plan would raise $2.2 trillion. now it would extend the bush tax cuts for everyone and yes that does include the top 2%. and it would instead raise $800 billion in revenue from so-called tax reform and that's what we mean when we talk about capping deductions and closing loopholes. the rest of the money comes from cuts
lies. >> listen, i want to ask you, one of the parts of the red line statement by president obama and secretary of state clinton, that if there was movement of any chemical weapons of mass destruction, movement -- now, as i listen to what you're saying, there hasn't been movement. it looks like they're getting ready where they are, but they haven't moved yet, so maybe they haven't violated the red line exactly. >> that's right, larry. they've got everything in place to do that. but what are the possibilities here? u.s. military officials say it would be very difficult to target certain areas. there are possibilities if they're going to load them on the planes. they could use cruise missiles to attack airstrips, for example. they can't blow up the weapons sites themselves, otherwise then the deadly gases could be spread among the public and kill thousands. the only other option according to some people that i've been talking to over the past couple of days is possibly take those cruise missiles and aim them not only at the airport strips, but at regime targets. even perhaps preside
message to you, specifically to the united states, to president obama? i'm sure they've got some words they want to share. >> reporter: they most certainly do. they want to know why it is that the u.s. has effectively stayed silent so long, they want to know why the u.s. is not supporting the syrian opposition, why the u.s. allowed the conflict to degenerate to such degree now they deal with islamist groups. they want to know why the u.s. seems to be okay with the fact that so many people have died so far and allowed the suffering to really continue, because even when it comes to humanitarian aid, for example, there's very little of that that's actually coming in. this issue of the rising cost of living, i cannot express how dire it has become. there are great concerns there are going to be riots over bread. we were down at one of the bakeries earlier in the day where the mob was around us, very angry, saying enough, stop filming, you americans, the world, you're watching our misery and you're mocking it. that's how desperate the situation here has become. and there is this growing sen
the south's not ready. there were states in the south that voted for barack obama to be president of the united states. >> sean: can i just say something? this is hurting the country. there's real racism, and when it's out there, people should be called out on it. this isn't it. they're making it up because they're dividing the country. this is a dangerous game they're playing over at nbc. >> this is back to the strategy of when did you stop beating your wife. they throw it out there that you were beating your wife and when did you stop. they throw out the race card. they throw out the narrative. we see this happening. unfortunately, you're right. when there's real racism, when there are issues that should be tackled, they're minimized because of this approach. the race pimps out there which melissa is. i've had this discussion with her. the fact is they're not fair and playing their race narrative. when you look at the dog whistle, the code. by the way, does anybody know what an ap style guide is over there. i never saw a dog whistle. i never saw all these terms. they're disgrace
a lot. when the united states came back to the negotiations under obama's leadership, there was a standing ovation. the u.s. is back and they will take the lead. unfortunately, it prevented others from acting, and it is actually in danger of doing worse than what bush did. bush said, i do not believe in a climate change. if you want to do something, do it and leave me alone. but this present team says we are the leaders of the world. if we cannot do much, we do not want others to do much. i hope in his second term president obama will show more of leadership. we know he has problems with congress and public opinion, but that is what leadership is about. we look forward to a change in the positioning of the data states so that it can take its proper place among the leaders who will fight climate change, show an example to the developing countries, and also provide money and technology transfers to developing countries. in doha, they are not showing any leadership on that. developed countries seem to be saying, we are not going to give you much money, so therefore you c
the "washington post" that they share a vision with president obama and the united states. what the president is doing is putting the united states in a position where our enemies are getting stronger. iranians have a nuclear weapon on the way. they're working to try to build one. you certainly don't hear very much about that any more. in the meantime, the president has stood aside. now, he in the last 24 hours was pretty strong in terms of threatening the syrians if they do use chemical weapons. let's hope that he, in fact lives up to that. it would be a fitters. >> sean: we'll look back through the history, the prism of history. when the world has to deal with the islamists, it's going to be ugly and probably on a scale of world war three. that's my sad prediction and i pray that i'm wrong. >> when people look back and say who lost the middle east, it will be pretty clear that it was barack obama. >> sean: good to see you. coming up, he's the photographer who snapped an image of a new york city man after being pushed onto the subway tracks. now there's outrage that he chose to take pictures
. as for hillary clinton's position at the state department, the national journal reports that president obama is, quote, genuinely conflicted over whether to pick kerry or united nations ambassador susan rice. president obama said yesterday that republican attacks against susan rice will not influence his decision. jo ari, what do you make of the chuck hagel situation with his name floating into the mix now? >> i thinkç it's a good faith efforts to take in a wide range of views. we know that president obama in his first term, obviously, went with secretary gates despite his ties to republican foreign policy. hagel is more of a progressive voice, but i'm not sure that a second-term obama presidency reaches back to another republican defense figure. >> and as to the john kerry/susan rice dilemma that the president faces, he says that the attacks on susan rice won't affect his decision one way or another. it won't force his hand to nominate her, and it won't affect his decision to go with senator kerry, if that's what he chooses to do. is he going to be able to incredibly present his choice as hi
next. she will not be secretary of state for president barack obama's second term. >>> it happened at the bridge toll booth. they broke the stories and at least two toll takers have been on the loose for months now. they would announce more information today. residents in san mateo counties are being asked to cut back on water. it stirred upset men at -- up set -- sediment and until they fix it, they will be importing water from further away. >>> they are making $1 million available to fix a huge sinkhole. it happened during a major storm. a clogged up storm drain added to the problems. it will allow the water to drain out of that sinkhole to get a more permanent fix. >>> stay right here with us, you can get up to the minute information by downloading the app to your mobile device. of course we will have updates for you on twitter and facebook. >>> yes we do. 6:09 is the time back for tara, here is more. >>> at the north whipple road exit, we have a car in a ditch and a two car crash. they are trying to clear quite a bit of debris in the roadway. police are looking at a crash where
city, ben sosenko, cbs 5. >>> the governor of new jersey paid a visit to president obama to plead for money to help his state rebuild from superstorm sandy. the storm destroyed 80% of seaside heights more than a month ago. the famous boardwalk was left in pieces. today governor chris christie asked the president and congress for more financial aid. christie says it's going to take $37 billion to recover and the president promises to help. >> he knows that our work is not done any more than the work in the states is done. >> president obama is expected to ask for $50 billion in storm relief for new jersey, new york and connecticut. >>> meantime, president obama made a special trip to virginia today to highlight his fix for the "fiscal cliff." the deadline for the president and congress to find a way to avoid tax increases and spending cuts is 25 days away. president obama made a special point to sit with a middle class family in virginia this afternoon. he was trying to offer an example of who would be hurt by the republican tax proposal. >> for them to be burdened unnecessarily be
to concentrate on making sure this economy gets blamed on obama. there are things they can do like propose tax cuts or rather tax hikes for the truly rich, ie, warren buffett. no more state and low tax deductions. cut out that hollywood foin accounting. let's go after the 1% of the 1%. forget the 1% of income earners. >> sean: there's a lot of good ideas there. >> thank you. >> sean: they have to stand against america going broke. >> they can do that by making clear it's not a good deal, making speeches, and not raising taxes on the job creators. >> sean: how about they pass a bill that extends all the bush tax cuts. how about that? >> then the senate will reject it. >> sean: then who is to blame? >> at some point if the bush tax cuts are repealed and everyone's taxes go up, i promise you the republicans will get blamed. there are some things the republicans do that feed into what the media is selling america. >> sean: wait a minute. i want to make sure i understand. are you saying, then, for pr purposes that they should give in to obama on the tax rate? >> not exactly. well, yeah, i guess i a
on blue states. the amt basically doesn't allow you to deduct for things like your state income taxes and hits states with high property taxes and high income taxes hard, so you're talking california, connecticut, new york. >> it's like the obama don or closet. >> and orrin hatch made that point this year, a republican senator. he said the amt hurts them more than us. >> they don't have to worry about it. they think that's their leverage. >> i want to think about other things discussed once we get past the tax rates, and i want to hear -- listen to president obama today talking about smflt other things, the spending cuts that are involved and what they're dealing with here. >> i think there's a recognition that maybe they can accept some rate increases as long as it's combined with serious entitlement reform and additional spending cuts. if we can get the leadership on the republican side to take that framework, to acknowledge that reality, then the numbers actually aren't that far apart. another way of putting this is, we can probably solve this in about a week. it's not that tough.
. >> do you think the united states has a role? >> certainly it does. president obama came out during the egyptian up riding saying that it has to go. clearly the united states has put itself on the side of people that want to live in freedom and democracy. i think it does deserve the united states making a strong remark. the way the constitution is written morsi's decree suggests that egypt is going in the wrong direction. this kind of contested national dialogue is a good thing. the problem is no one is moving toward compromise. they're moving toward confrontation. that means that brotherhood will seek to impose its will on the residents of the population and nobody is willing to put up that. >> what does this say about morsi? he came across as this broker in the gaza negotiation. is he a dictator in sheep's clothing? >> when we were on your program over the summer and morsi wads elected president and he said he's a fighting personality. this is the way i think both of us expected him to behave. i don't think he wants to make himself president for life. this constitutional declarati

hague for those of you who don't know me. i was appointed by president obama a little more than two years ago to be united states attorney and it is my incredible honor to represent the president, the obama administration here in the northern district of california. welcome to the stop bullying summit. i'm a federal prosecutor so it may seem odd that here we are talking about bullying and we asked all of you to be here and i want to explain the origin of that and why this happened. you people, everybody in this room, has been involved in this issue and is doing incredible work on this issue and we were so honored to be a part of it and to meet with all of you and to speak with you about it. the origin is that as the united states attorney, the administration wants me, wants all the united states attorneys, to go out into the community. it's actually a very different role for the united states attorney is envisioned by this administration. this administration, the president, attorney general holder, they want the u.s. attorneys to go out into the attorney to talk to the communitie

obama issued a warning to the assad regime not to use chemical weapons. secretary of state hillary clinton says if assad goes down that road, there will be consequences. >> suffice it to say we are certainly planning to -- to, uhm, take action if that eventuality were to occur. >> turkey has been supportive of the syrian opposition and is concerned about possible retaliation by syrian missiles. >>> a u.s. navy spokesman says no american drones are missing despite claims by iran that it captured one. commander jason filata says all the unmanned surveillance aircraft in the region are accounted for. other nations in the gulf including the united arab emirates have scan eagle drones in service. >>> another attempt today to salvage the national olympic league season but this time without the top two negotiators. six team owners and six players scheduled to meet without commissioner gary bettman and the union executive. it's been 80 days since the players were locked out in a contract dispute. a lot of the season has been canceled. >>> yesterday, comedian katt williams was thrown out of

of state. leon panetta does not plan to stay on for president obama. although there's fuzziness around that. and the nation needs a cia director post-david petraeus. now president obama may announce his pick for defense secretary within the next couple weeks and he may make it in a high-powered package announcement along with his choice for secretary of state. so all these jobs coming up, state, defense, cia, all will need to be confirmed by the senate and will be announced maybe at once and before christmas. maybe this is the time to have the debate about the way our national security is run. the debate we did not necessarily have before we started making big fundamental changes to that system that mostly just still get discussed behind closed doors. joining us now is senator claire mccaskill, chair of the support subcommittee. thank you for being here. >> it's great to be here. >> you and i have had a lot of interesting conversations over the years about national security. in part, because we have some differences of opinion on it. did i say anything that struck you as a misstatement of t
from president obama obviously, from secretary of state hillary clinton and from the british foreign secretary and indeed from the russians. so that tends to say that this conspiracy theory, that this isn't really happening might not be true. the question is perhaps what kind of game president assad may bow playing here. and some -- may be playing here. and some say it is essentially about a wharf nerves. as the -- a war of nerves. as he moves to the center of damascus he gets more desperate, and signaling he may be about to use the chemical weapons, he may believe he puts himself in a better negotiating position if he takes the decision to try to seek asylum somewhere. >> we will see. jonathon, thanks so much. now some perspective on just how devastating sarin gas can be. as we reported, it is one of the deadliest chemicals known around the world. it is five times the strength of cyanide. one drop can kill. the affects on the body are nothing short of horrifying. let's bring in the head of the department of medicine at vanderbilt university medical center in nashville. great to see

though it's a state that barack obama carried. they got this through in the house and senate. it's a big deal, it's a poison pill for the eurounions, they h right to work. a lot of new businesses when they're looking at building new factories or building new plants, they won't even consider states that are not right to work. so much of the growth in this country is in the right to work states. so i think economically, if it passes, it will be probably tuesday or wednesday when we get a final vote on this, i think it puts michigan, a state with a 10%, 11% unemployment rate, puts that state right back on the nap. >> si stephen correct that this actually economically makes sense, even if politically, it seems kind of like out of step with the times? >> i go worback and forth on th on the down side, it goes for slower wages. i think steven is right, it will lead to more jobs, i mean michigan is at a disadvantage against some of the right to work states that are just south of it and its lost a lot of the auto jobs to places like kentucky and tennessee and indiana. and this will probably make
obama came out during the egyptian up riding saying that it has to go. clearly the united states has put itself on the side of people that want to live in freedom and democracy. 'til now, the administration has been circumspect. i think it does deserve the white house making a strong statement about the importance of freedom, democracy, accountability, rule of law. certainly as mark said, the way the constitution is written morsi's decree suggests that egypt is going in the wrong direction. in the abstract, this kind of contested national dialogue over a constitution is a good thing. the problem is that no one, no one is moving towards compromise, they're moving towards confrontation. and what that means is that the brotherhood will seek to impose its will on the rest of the population, and as we've seen in the past two weeks, nobody is willing to put up with that. >> what does this say about morsi? he came across as this broker in the gaza negotiation. is he a dictator in sheep's clothing? >> when we were on your program over the summer and morsi wads elected president and we said he's

is also being mentioned as a possible successor to secretary of state hillary clinton if president obama doesn't pick u.n. ambassador susan rice. >>> elsewhere, president obama has drawn a hard line on tax increases for the wealthiest of americans. rejecting an offer that republicans claim is as good as it's going to get. tracie potts joins us with the latest on this. good morning. >> reporter: right now it's looking more likely that we could, could, go over that fiscal cliff at the end of the month because right now, negotiations here are at a stand still. president obama talks to the business round table today after telling bloomberg he absolutely won't bunch. the wealthiest americans must pay more. >> we're not going to be able to get a deal without it. >> reporter: he may be in a good position to wait it out. a new poll found more half of americans will blame republicans if we go over the fiscal cliff. >> republicans do not want to touch one hair on the head of one person making over $250,000. that is the rub. >> they've got to come with some specific revenue. they refuse to do that.

't touch guns if you want healthcare. gabby giffords was on that list. that's what obama is up against. >> eliot: here's the thing. you have eloquently and precisely articulated what the state of play is although the only thing i would say is that was a statement relating more to a president who had not yet been re-elected. even though he was wrong and awfully wrong in his refusal to raise this issue in this first term, i have a lingering hope that the second term president without worries of some of those swing voters, the pennsylvania, michigan, ohio etc. who he no longer needs maybe he'll have the backbone to raise this issue. time is short tonight. i want you to come back in the next week or two because we've got to develop a strategy which elected officials we can say please, pick up this issue. run with it. it's your moral responsibility. there are others, john, i hope you'll help us to figure out who they might be. >> i would love to, and we need leadership in the media as well in washington. >> eliot: john rosenthal co-founder of to have handgun violence and the american hunter

in more than not, urgent action is clear and now. i think we are saying to president obama is stated very clearly there would drastic consequences for assad and his government if these biological and chemical weapons. we're with you. there's strong support across congress if the president takes a strong action necessary to prevent a very, very historically horrific humanitarian disaster in syria. >> thank you, senator lieberman, senator mccain and senator graham. we do represent a broad range of views is from the senate. democratic caucus that there is a unanimous view here today that we support president obama in announcing the red line that should bashar assad who's murdered tens of thousands of people in the last two years take unthinkable step of using advanced chemical weapons against his own people that there will be prompt consequences. this is not an easy thing to get a consensus in the side of the united take on anything. i joined a statement today to send a clear message to those who from outside the halls of the capitol watch is on fiscal matters, other policy matters there's b
